I have made a lot or aerial targets by just gluing cardboard(broken down computer paper boxes) together with caprpenters glue then tracing a circle and cutting out with a jigsaw. The targets are really durable.

Another option for throwing disks, most delis, bagel shops and resturants, get there pickles and sometimes saurkraut in 5-gal. buckets. I have got a couple dozen of the tops to these buckets from a few local food places when they throw them out. They seem to work fine for us.   :thumbsup:

Thanks to Frank and Tim, the pics show the width  :)

Question on the bungies: I see one is hooked into the back upper cross bolt and the other is doubled up and goes thru the 1.5 inch hole. Is this for a distance throwing difference?

thanks

Hank

One last question. What are the PVC sleeves on the back three bars for? The one on the top looks like 3" pipe and it appears the pvc gets smaller on each successive bar. Are these to protect the bungee cords from the threads? I just couldn't figure this out based on the different sizes of the pvc.  :confused:   Tim thanks again for everything. I am sure you didn't think this would drag out so much.

yes the pvc pipe is to protect the bungee I use the 48" cloth covered bungees from ACE hardware.  the different bars are for putting the bungees in different places I have a pic the shows the disc up about 50' when you hook the bottom bar with both ends.  If you want a copy of the sketch please email me and put thrower in the subject line.
Thanx
Tim
